Trippi on Hardball was hinting buyer's remorse could hurt Kerry
He was saying that Kerry's rise is happening pretty quick, and this could hurt him in states like Tennesse and Wisconsin. My advice to Kerry supporters is to avoid the mistake Dean made leading up to Iowa, and also to remain positive.

1. It seems like he's doing the right thing...
He doesn't seem to be taking things for granted and is also trying to stay above the fray and keeping his focus on Bush. If he keeps up that way and keeps getting out there the way he has been I think he'l be o.k.

2. If Kerry had time to "peak" before the elections = buyer remorse

3. At least it wouldn't be $43 million worth of remorse.
I'm sorry, but in light of the day's events, I find Trippi's remarks divisive and reaching.

I donated $ to Dean, and I'm not at all happy with the campaign's financial management.

Just my opinion. Flame away.

4. I donated $ too and I consider it an investment in America
The message got out, the people were inspired to get up off the couch and do something in the political process. I haven't seen such a fired-up America in god knows when.

I'm curious to see how the voter numbers will begin to dwindle as another great yawn at the political process emerges from the turned-off nation, as the mud-flinging begins. We can expect no less between the Kennedy machine vs. the bush machine.

7. Straight Shooter is straight on target, money well spent
and I'm still donating more.

Since Iowa, Kerry has gotten roughly 4.5 million in donations, Dean has gotten 4 million.

There are still a lot of people out there who think Dean's message is a good message.

6. That's rediculous
He's basically saying that Kerry should prefer close contests and maybe loose a few that way he doesn't peak too early. That's not a danger if your support is real.
